1 in 8 Americans is living with Type-2 diabetes and over 7 million of these individuals have been prescribed Invokana at some point to help regulate daily glucose levels. The diabetes drug Invokana was heavily advertised, rushed to the market and then found to cause major complications in patients. Sound familiar? Too many of the dangerous drugs that we help our clients get compensation for fall into that very pattern where too little time is spent researching the full effects of a drug because the pharmaceutical companies are blinded by profit. In 2015 alone, Invokana producer Johnson & Johnson reported earnings of $1.3 Billion from the drug. If you or a loved one took Invokana for type-2 diabetes and are now suffering from serious side effects, the Walch Law Firm can help.
Invokana Uses & Injuries
Doctors have been prescribing Invokana to type-2 diabetes patients since it was approved by the FDA back in 2013. Belonging to a class of medicines known as SGLT2, Invokana works by passing excess blood sugar out of the body in the urine stream of patients. Invokana is not without some serious, potentially deadly side effects that were not properly warned by Janssen Pharmaceuticals and parent company Johnson & Johnson, including:
- Amputation: In May, 2017 the FDA required a black box warning placed on Invokana to warn of the increased risk for leg and foot amputations as a result of taking the diabetes drug. While toe and middle of the foot were the most common amputations, some patients have required multiple amputations.
- Ketoacidosis: In May, 2015 the FDA issued a drug safety communication informing patients and doctors of the potential link between Invokana and other types of SKLT2 diabetes medications and the development of ketoacidosis. Marked by symptoms such as difficulty breathing, vommiting, nausea, abdominal pain and extreme fatigue, Ketoacidosis requires hospitalization and medical monitoring to get the body's acid levels back under control.
- Kidney issues: In June, 2016 the FDA strengthened their warning related to kidney issues as a result of taking Invokana. Causing kidney failure and other issues, Invokana patients risk dangerous amounts of waste building up in their bodies when this happens.
To date, over 1,000 lawsuits have been filed against Jassen Pharmaceutical and Johnson & Johnson for Invokana injuries and deaths. If you have been injured or lost a loved one as a result of Invokana-related complications, this is not a financial burden you should bear on your own.
